I listened to Ottis on the radio
 yelled out the song as people came past
must have  thought I was some kind of lunatic
but I did not care
the way I have always not cared even when  I was at rock bottom
some people do not get up but day after day
up  I get like the man off the cross
I walked into the church a woman was playing the piano
I went over to her and told her that she played lovely
She told me it was Tchaikovsky and then she told me her wedding was tomorrow
and why didn’t I come
I never went to  her wedding but a few days later I went back to the church and thought about playing the piano not that I can play of course
when I went over to the piano there was no piano almost as if that magical moment had never happened
